Step out and explore the depths of the ocean or the far reaches of outer space with the family this fall with Kids Free in October. The annual program provides free admission for kids ages 12 and under at 40 cultural, arts, and science museums throughout San Diego County. Participating museums include the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, Coronado Museum of History and Art, San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum, and the USS Midway Museum, among many others. Nearly 20,000 kids participated in the program last year.

One coupon is good for up to two free child admissions with one full-price paid adult admission. You will need one coupon per museum visit. In addition, two children 12 years old and under can ride the Metropolitan Transit System for free with a paid adult on Saturdays and Sundays. Children under five years old always ride free with adults. For more information visit www.sandiegomuseumcouncil.org/kidsfree.
